Dear blog

Dear blog,
Today, I ran my first 10K race.


I wanted to finish in less than 1:10 and I did that. I’d like to thank the rain for not lasting for the whole race, that was very nice of it.

Now I will do more stretching, and later a sushi dinner well-earned.

Love from,


  1. Congratulations! That’s awesome! 🙂

  2. Congratulations! I need to get running again – I finished a race, and since then, I’ve hardly run at all. Ack!

  3. Way to go you!
    It pissed rain ALL day in Montreal. You’re lucky it didnt last the whole race by you!

    We got a treadmill today. Hopefully I can shed some baby weight over the winter when I can’t go stroller walking outside. (Malls are too tempting to walk and shop… lol!)

  4. Nice job! and thanks for the inspiration. I’ve been less than motivated lately and you’re setting a good example.

  5. Whoa! That’s amazing. Congratulations!

  6. Awesome! Congratulations 🙂 Enjoy the sushi, mmm.

  7. woot!!!! congrats on the race and the time!!!!

    Yeah! Well done!
    I’m out with injury right now. No marathon next month. *sniff* But it brings me joy to see others running races when I can’t, and great finish there!

    Next time under the hour for the 10k?

  19. Way to go – and what a great time!! Congratulations!

  20. Congratulations! And well done. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed the well-deserved Sushi..

  21. Congrats! Good for you – and I’ll bet that accomplishment feels fantastic!!

  22. Awesome! Congrats!

  23. Well done!! 😀 I once had to bike 25k on a crappy old bike, took me almost 3 hours. It was all I could do to not hit my teacher over the head with it when I finally wheeled over the finish line, legs all wobbly and he said “well it was about time! the race is over!”

    I admire you, and I know it’s such a wonderful feeling to achieve something like this. 🙂 Congrats! Enjoy your sushi!

  24. I live in Ohio, but my mum’s from Hamilton, Ontario. Is that the mountain I see in the background? Was your race in an area along the escarpment?

  25. GOOD FOR YOU!!!

    And now….


    I’m obviously not a runner. ;o)

    Enjoy a nice warm bath too, after (or maybe even before) the sushi; with wine….

  26. Congratulations! What a fabulous accomplishment!

  27. Excellent! Way to go!

  28. Knitting awesome sweaters and having a PhD are one thing – both uttery amazing in their own right but running races too? You do it all!

  29. Fantastic! Well done.

  30. Congratulations! That’s a great accomplishment. (Though, I must go on record as saying that running without some big animal or armed person chasing you is just CRAZY.)

  31. Woohoo! That’s awesome!

  32. YESSSSS!!!!!!

    Congratulations! And I’m totally on board with the sushi reward. It’s Happy Fish 🙂

  33. Good on ya dude!!!! way to go. that is such a great accomplishment.
